Welcome to Canongate Kirk
Whether you have come from around the world or are exploring your own backyard, we are pleased to have you here. Canongate Kirk is an ancient church with a fascinating history – and a contemporary Christian community that feels called to serve and to worship Christ today. As well as a place of interesting historical significance, it is a peaceful place where all may rest and refresh, and, if you like, pray. Everyone is welcome.
Open Kirk: Between May and September, volunteers aim to keep the Kirk open to visitors as much as possible. If the doors are open please come in! Stewards are on hand to welcome you and to share our ancient church with you. They will hand out information in your preferred language or you can download the information – click below on the language of your choice. PLEASE NOTE OPEN KIRK IS CURRENTLY NOT OPERATING DUE TO CORONA VIRUS RESTRICTIONS.
